Why you should go: The capital’s winters are relatively mild, but the outside temperature doesn’t really matter: The best thing to do here any time of year is explore the city’s top-notch cultural spots, from the Smithsonian Museums to the Museum of Natural History. This time of year, you’ll get to enjoy them without crowds of screaming kids.
Why it’s a steal: Median flight costs to Washington D.C. are $255 between December and March, while hotel rooms go for $221 on average—a savings of 23 percent over the fall months.
Where to stay: The Kimpton Mason & Rook is in a prime spot on DC’s 14th Street near Logan Circle, walking distance from tons of popular bars and restaurants (the hotel itself offers a daily wine reception). The 178 rooms start at $189 in the winter.
